The AfIGF Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) is calling for active participation in the African IGF 2022 program development. Stakeholders who wish to submit workshop proposals are urged to submit a variety of types of sessions including Round Tables, Panel discussions, Lightning Talks, and Open Forum until 20 May 2022 at 23:59 UTC. This year the African IGF will take place in Lilongwe, Malawi from the 19th to the 21st of July 2022 and will be organised as a hybrid event. This means that participants can join on-site or online which has to be considered when proposing sessions because all participants should be able to engage actively and have the same experience, and AfIGF 2022 hybrid nature means that stakeholders can submit session proposals regardless of whether they plan to be present onsite in Malawi or online, although they are required to have at minimum one moderator onsite.
The Theme for this years African IGF is Digital Inclusion and Trust in Africa.
The African IGF is also organised under the following five sub-themes;
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Cyber Security, Privacy, and Personal Data Protection
- Digital Skills and Human Capacity Development
- Affordable Meaningful Access
- Digital Infrastructure
Please submit your session proposal here: https://afigf.africa/2022workshops until 20 May 2022 at 23:59 UTC
